  1. Rambert Dance Company in Lady into Fox/Stand & Stare/Divine Influence/Transit at Sadler's Wells

    Press Review Luke Jennings, Observer, Monday 20 November 2006Performance 14 - 18 Nov

    ‘With only 12 minutes of shaky film remaining of Howard’s original, Rambert director Mark Baldwin has reimagined the piece and the result is striking.’ 

  2. Royal Ballet in ‘Chroma/ The Four Temperaments/ DGV (Danse à grande vitesse) at Royal Opera House

    Press Review Emma Brockes, Guardian, Monday 20 November 2006Performance 17 - 29 Nov

    ‘It was fast and furious and totally gripping, and everything started to make sense, suddenly, even the programme notes, if you skipped the bit about “the quintessence of physical thinking”.’ 

  3. Royal Ballet in ‘Chroma/ The Four Temperaments/ DGV (Danse à grande vitesse) at Royal Opera House

    Press Review Judith Mackrell, Guardian, Monday 20 November 2006Performance 17 - 29 Nov

    ‘…two new works premiered by Christopher Wheeldon and Wayne McGregor made this company the most exciting place to be.’  

  4. Royal Ballet in ‘Chroma/ The Four Temperaments/ DGV (Danse à grande vitesse) at Royal Opera House

    Graham Watts, Monday 20 November 2006 — Performance: 17 - 29 Nov

    Big nights for the Royal Ballet in recent years have tended to arise from new versions of old classics or the recovery of some lost masterpiece: rare episodes of new work have come and gone without causing much … Continue Reading

  5. Rambert Dance Company in Lady into Fox/Stand & Stare/Divine Influence/Transit at Sadler's Wells

    Press Review Lindsey Clarke, , Friday 17 November 2006Performance 14-18 Nov

    Populating a meaty and variously joyful, brooding and contemplative bill, Rambert’s dancers appeared fresh and strong on opening night. New dancers are coming through and the more established personalities, such as the fabulous Angela Towler, are realigning themsel… 

  6. Rambert Dance Company in Lady into Fox/Stand & Stare/Divine Influence/Transit at Sadler's Wells

    Press Review Clement Crisp, FT, Friday 17 November 2006Performance 14-18 Nov

    ‘Of course there have been bad moments in the past, but none so misbegotten, so graceless, and so dismissive of the company’s past as this parade of the inadequate, the over-blown, the coarsely self-indulgent.’ 

  7. Rambert Dance Company in Lady into Fox/Stand & Stare/Divine Influence/Transit at Sadler's Wells

    Press Review Mark Monahan, Telegraph, Friday 17 November 2006Performance 14-18 Nov

    ‘…while inventiveness was everywhere in the four-part bill, the programme offered remarkably little in the way of emotional involvement.’ 

  8. Rambert Dance Company in Lady into Fox/Stand & Stare/Divine Influence/Transit at Sadler's Wells

    Press Review Debra Craine, Times, Friday 17 November 2006Performance 14-18 Nov

    [Lady into Fox] has a score that runs out of steam, and choreography that runs out of drama, yet its mix of surreal metaphor and creepy eroticism exerts a strange pull.

  10. Royal Ballet in Sleeping Beauty at Royal Opera House

    Press Review Clement Crisp, Financial Times, Wednesday 15 November 2006Performance 28 Oct-20 Dec in rep

    ‘‘The Sleeping Beauty continues in repertory at Covent Garden, and I do not expect to see a more brilliantly achieved reading of Aurora than that given by Tamara Rojo on Thursday night, when she took the stage on radiant form, with Carlos Acosta making his Lo… 

  11. Momix in Lunar Sea at Peacock Theatre

    Press Review Sanjoy Roy, Guardian, Wednesday 15 November 2006Performance 7-25 Nov

    ‘Dancers swim in mid-air like dolphins and slip sideways like seahorses. With legs lit, a couple morph into a rolling octopus; with arms lit, the dancers become a flock of gulls.’  

  12. Rambert Dance Company in Lady into Fox/Stand & Stare/Divine Influence/Transit at Sadler's Wells

    Press Review Judith Mackrell, Guardian, Wednesday 15 November 2006Performance 14-18 Nov

    ‘Overall this programme feels like disappointing drop from Rambert’s recent scintillating form, especially with two debut works by company members completing the evening.’  

  13. Rambert Dance Company in Lady into Fox/Stand & Stare/Divine Influence/Transit at Sadler's Wells

    Press Review Zoe Anderson, Independent, Wednesday 15 November 2006Performance 14-18 Nov

    ‘Rambert has a history of encouraging new choreography, but this latest batch is out of focus.’ 

  14. Greencandle Dance Company in Listening Eyes at Jackson's Lane Theatre

    Jessye Parke, Wednesday 15 November 2006 — Performance: 12 Nov

    Listening Eyes is a bright, colourful and entertaining work by four performers and two musicians from Green Candle Dance Company. This is a show designed for children aged four plus and the performers clearly be… Continue Reading

  15. The Cholmondeleys & Featherstonehaughs in 'Yippeee!!! 2006' at Sadler's Wells

    Press Review Sarah Frater, Evening Standard, Wednesday 15 November 2006Performance 3 & 4 Nov

    ‘In Yippeee!! ! Anderson doesn’t so much reproduce Berkeley numbers – that wouldn’t be possible with 12 dancers when he had hundreds – as evoke his world, the frantic costumes changes in the wings, the nudity, the on-stage/ offstage tensions…
